Letter to the Amazon / Marina Tsvetaeva ; translated from the French by A'Dora Phillips & Gaëlle Cogan ; introduction by Catherine Ciepiela.

Author: T︠S︡vetaeva, Marina, 1892-1941,
Description: Like many of Tsvetaeva's essays and poems, Letter to the Amazon is addressed to another writer, in this case Natalie Clifford Barney, a wealthy American expatriate in Paris. Though written in 1932, Tsvetaeva's letter was in response to what Barney said about lesbian relationships and motherhood in her 1920 Pensées d'une Amazone (Thoughts of an Amazon). Tsvetaeva uses her essay to emphasize what is to her mind a general truth of lesbian relationships--that they cannot endure because of a woman's innate desire for a child-- and to explore her agonized feelings about Sophia Parnok, the Russian poet with whom she fell in love in 1914, when Tsvetaeva was twenty-two and Parnok twenty-nine. A new introduction by scholar Catherine Ciepiela contextualizes the essay for contemporary audiences.
